CSA Hack: Substitute Chard Stems for Celery

I love how all the things that used to be in my mother’s “Hints from Heloise” books are now called life hacks, bringing them up to the moment and giving them geek cred. This week I stared down a few recipes calling for celery, which isn’t yet in season. But chard is! I cut the stems off, sliced them like celery, then put them in egg salad, tempeh salad, and tuna salad. Chard stems: same crunch, in season, and way prettier!
